    Hey everyone :wave_cry:

    I'm really excited because I am going for my first weigh-in this evening.
    I am now around 17 stone 10 lbs and am 5 ft 2' so as you can imagine, I look horrible.
    I have been wanting to lose weight for the longest time but it just has not happened yet :mad: I am 21 years old and I can't do anything that most 21 year olds do. I know that I wouldn't have the courage to leave my home if I didn't have to go to college. I hate going out and I am afraid that I will lose my friends as a result of always refusing to go out with them. My mum always says that at least I have a pretty face but I am sick of being the "pretty-faced" fat girl. The last time I went on a night out, my best friend and I were making our way from one bar to another and this guy goes past, looks and me, laughs and says "the biggest loser". I can't even explain how much that hurt me. I felt embarrassed and ashamed. I don't want to be that girl anymore. I want to be the confident girl that I once was a few years back. I don't want to be depressed anymore or crying in my room alone as a result of my weight.
    So tonight, I am taking control and going for my first weigh-in. I am really excited but scared at the same time. I really want to succeed but I guess I just feel weak and feel like I don't have the will-power to do this diet but I still have hope. I have done lipotrim and similar diets in the past but have never stuck them out. I am sure this community will help me stay focused and I hope this is my time to shine. I look forward to sharing my journey with you guys.

    All the best! Do you know It never ceases to horrify me to hear of the casual abuse people throw out to the overweight. I think it's shocking that that guy said that to you. People have no idea how weight problems develop. They assume stereotypes like 'lazy' or 'greedy' but I'm sure that often the weight creeps on because of the hidden carbs (usually high fructose corn syrup) in so many foods and the 'food pyramid' that is pushed on us that tells us carbs are healthy.

    If it's any consolation I have learned the hard way that I am very skilled at gaining weight very quickly if I eat the wrong things for me. I don't even have to eat that much!!! But vlcds like Cambridge really really do work, if you can steel yourself to get through the first week.

    Wishing you loads of luck. Remember, you can lose weight and show off that pretty face. That guy will always be an idiot!!!
